    Feels really inexpensive. Like a silvertone. That binding rot is pretty extensive. From the looks of it, I'd say the see guitars do this a lot. Lacquers age weird

    Can tell by looking at this that there's some people out there that think that a guitar is a piece of wood, and doesn't have a soul, or that it isn't alive,!!!!! news flash jerks!!! it is all these and more in the right person's hands, dare I say arms there have been times in my life where if I hadn't had my friend with me I probly would not be here today. Sound crazy guys maybe but maybe not !!!!!!!someone needs to help this pc.soon!!!! sorry for the rant!!!

    ummmmm... okay.

    moving on now, Wayne Gretschky is correct (as usual). It's a Baldwin-era Rally model. From the looks of it, it doesn't appear to have been cared for very well.

    That is pretty rough. How much are they asking for it?

    I never got a straight answer on the price. They did say they thought it was from 1967.

    Don't know what it is about the Rallies but I'd love to get one. I almost ended up with a bamboo yellow one in need of restoration but the deal fell through at the last minute so if anyone is trying to off load one in need of some work I might be interested in it :D

    I had a Streamliner and loved it. If you have got a 1950s Chet Atkins, this may seem like a clunker, but they are nice and light, and can have a clean or raunchy sound in my experience.

    Truss rod access? Dint the baldwin eras do a truss rod adjustment at the bottom instead of the top?

    I believe that is the treble boost unit access. Jay Scott criticized the treble boost as being unnecessary in a guitar with already trebly HiLos but Dan Duffy pointed out it was really a volume boost.
